Brazil: Good Economy Gives Lula a Boost

    The index of positive evaluations of Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s Administration rose from 38.2% in August to 41.3% in September, in the CNT/Sensus’s 72nd round of polling.

    In terms of negative ratings, the survey shows a slight decline, from 17.7% in August to 16.4% in September.


    For the President of the National Transportation Confederation (CNT), Clésio Andrade, the improvement in the government’s ratings reflects the positive results in the country’s economy.


    “What this poll clearly demonstrates is an improvement in the evaluation of President Lula’s Administration, and this shows that the economy is responding. People are perceiving that the economy is really improving from a general perspective.”


    The CNT/Sensus poll interviewed 2 thousand people in 24 states between September 21 and 23. The margin of error is +/- 3%.
